The month of February is finally over and with the chronicles of valentine’s day gone with it, a few memories came to life.

My heart was full for an instant and I pondered if this was the… Read More Dear future lover/husband.
I turned 25 today and I’ve reached that stage where I put everything into perspective and question everything: my life choices, my career choices, my love life choices and I wonder if I did things right. It’s also that age where society thinks you should have it all figured out. So let me see if… Read More Mid-life crisis: is the pressure really worth it?
I think about you sometimes but not in the same way. Not in a romantic way. Not in the memories and longing. Not in the reminiscing and hoping we would get back together.

Most times when someone goes through a loss or a heartbreak, people expect them to be over it quickly. I had… Read More I’m still healing…
A grateful heart is a magnet for miracles For the longest time I asked myself what I did wrong. Where I went wrong. What I should have done differently. What I should have said differently. Who I should have or shouldn’t have met, dated or let into my life. I questioned everything and wondered if… Read More The power in gratitude.
In order to heal, we must first forgive and sometimes the person we must forgive is ourselves. Some days your past comes knocking at your door and it presents you memories. Some good, some bad but most often we dwell in the bad ones. We recapture all our mistakes and start wondering what we could… Read More I forgive myself.
Regardless of what else you put on, wear love. It is your basic, all-purpose garment. Never be without it. Love is such a complex topic.
